3 stars Short and easy. These guys play, no doubt, they play music of their times. It is obvious we are not in the 70's. Why do I mention this? Originality. The 70's were not just a bunch of great bands. It was a singular point in time, an explosion of sounds and styles all new, but mostly of compositional effort!! That's why it will always sound as new. These guys play, and even compose, and they do it well. But they borrow too many sounds, they lock themselves within a style, or a sound, whatever you like, in the tech-djent stream. They dropped quite the hoarse cuackcuacks since their debut EP "The Manipulation Theory", but the remaining cuackcuacks are less inspired here. Unfortunately, while they moved forward into an ambient space tech sound, the great guitar riffs are fewer here. Something important is lost in the way. There are good tracks, but others are kind of apathetic. This band may be losing the good track. The tech-spatial won't take them anywhere.
